** Another author who does it a lot is [=David A. McIntee=]. The villains in ''White Darkness'' are Film/HammerHorror stalwarts Creator/PeterCushing and Ingrid Pitt. The ultimate villain in ''First Frontier'' is Basil Rathbone.
** Franchise/SherlockHolmes, in the IntercontinuityCrossover ''All-Consuming Fire'' is also Basil Rathbone, at least on the front cover. On the cover of ''Happy Endings'' he isn't (reportedly the cover artist was explicitly instructed not to, possibly because the novel also features the villain from ''First Frontier''), but Watson is Nigel Bruce.

Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardKiss: In "The Also People", the People (a CaptainErsatz of Literature/TheCulture) rub noses rather than kiss, leading to some confusion the first time the Doctor's companion Chris tries to make out with his GirlOfTheWeek.

The Seventh Doctor initially traveled only with Ace, his companion at the time of the show's cancellation. They were soon joined by Characters/BerniceSummerfield, AdventurerArchaeologist, a more stable and experienced character compared to Ace, who allowed for greater CharacterDevelopment. Other new companions included Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej, SaltAndPepper police detectives from the 30th century. Bernice (or Benny for short) became a BreakoutCharacter and eventually [[Franchise/BerniceSummerfield got more spinoffs than can be sensibly listed]], the most well-known of which is her own ongoing Creator/BigFinish audio series.

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Many of the "earth-bound" stories took place in this vague era, a few years ahead in order to allow for some fantastic elements, but not far enough to be unrecognisable. ''Iceberg'' (published in 1993), for example, went to great lengths to give background and character to the far future world...of '''2006'''![[note]]...and actually didn't do too badly in a lot of respects. No jet-boat luxury cruisers or holocameras just yet, but a single European currency and maddeningly paranoid airport security was spot on.[[/note]]

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the Seventh Doctor and his ManipulativeBastard[=/=][[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] ways. Much of the series touches on the fallout of the Doctor's [[MoralDissonance less than spotless ethics]] and how people..."appreciated" it.

* BaitAndSwitchLesbians: While the TV show's implications about Ace's sexuality are ... confused (if you're ''very'' generous, the intent is that she's bi; it's probably more accurate to say her preferences were entirely DependingOnTheWriter), the lesbian subtext is rather spectacularly contradicted in the books.

** The Literature/SherlockHolmes crossover ''All-Consuming Fire'', as well as multiple Holmesian references, features an appearance by ''Literature/{{The Lost World|1912}}'''s Lord John Roxon, and references to Literature/ProfessorChallenger, Franchise/FuManchu, and Creator/KimNewman's Literature/DiogenesClub agent Charles Beauregard. It's also one of several New Adventures to have references to the Franchise/CthulhuMythos.
